2022 was an amazing year for GeForce gamers, with the launch of GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards, and continual innovation that made NVIDIA DLSS, NVIDIA Reflex, and ray tracing even better. DLSS momentum is strong with over 250 DLSS games and creative applications now available, and 50 additional DLSS 3 games released or soon-to-be released.
Ray tracing entered a new era with the launch of Portal with RTX, a fully ray-traced reimagining of Valve’s classic game, showing the full potential of NVIDIA RTX Remix and real-time ray tracing on GeForce RTX graphics cards. And NVIDIA Reflex adoption accelerated rapidly, with GeForce gamers now enjoying more responsive gameplay in over 50 titles, with new integrations launching every month.
2023 promises to be equally exciting, and to kick things off NVIDIA headed to CES 2023 to make numerous announcements for gamers and creators that leverage the power of RTX to accelerate workloads, and enable new possibilities.
In this summary, we’ll highlight all of our GeForce announcements, which include the unveiling of GeForce RTX 40 Series laptops, releasing February, the reveal of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, releasing January 5th, the announcement of new DLSS 3 games, news about GeForce NOW’s Ultimate upgrade streaming RTX 4080-class performance, and more.

At CES 2023 we announced DLSS 3 will multiply performance in Atomic Heart, Dakar Desert Rally, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, The Day Before, Warhaven, Witchfire, and even more anticipated 2023 games. Also, DLSS 2 will be coming to more games, including Dead Space.
Check out NVIDIA DLSS and RTX videos for the games below, and head to our dedicated CES 2023 RTX Games article to learn more about each title as well as a sneak peek at ongoing DLSS improvements to DLSS Frame Generation and DLSS Super Resolution Ultra Performance mode.
RTX 4080 Gaming Coming To GeForce NOW, Streaming At Up To 240 FPS
GeForce NOW is NVIDIA’s cloud gaming service, which makes high-performance gaming accessible on billions of devices everywhere. With over 25 million members, more than 1,500 games including over 100 free-to-play titles, and 30 data centers that reach over 100 countries, GeForce NOW gives PC gamers everywhere the power to stream across all their devices with the latest in GeForce RTX technology.
Starting later this month, NVIDIA Ada Lovelace Architecture GPUs are rolling out to GeForce NOW. Exclusively available with the new Ultimate membership, the upgraded GeForce NOW RTX 4080 SuperPods will deliver the highest resolutions and frame rates from the cloud, beautifully ray-traced experiences thanks to the magic of DLSS 3 powered by AI, and immersive, high-performance gaming from the first cloud gaming solution with support for ultrawide monitors.
For competitive gamers, we are also bringing NVIDIA Reflex to GeForce NOW, streaming games at 240 FPS. Combined with Reflex, gamers playing on GeForce RTX 4080 SuperPODs can achieve click-to-pixel latency below 40ms, also a first in cloud gaming. That’s about half the latency of a console game played natively in your home.
New NVIDIA Studio Announcements For Creators
At CES, we’ve made several new announcements about NVIDIA Studio, our RTX accelerated platform for creators. In addition to the benefits Ada brings to new Studio laptops, here are a few of the highlights:
- New GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs, including new GeForce laptops, power NVIDIA Omniverse creative workflows, with Omniverse Nucleus Cloud — for cloud 3D collaboration — in free early access now. 3D creators can take advantage of a new suite of generative AI tools and experimental plug-ins using the power of AI as the ultimate creative assistant, including an alpha Blender release with new AI integrations. Built on Omniverse, NVIDIA RTX Remix is the easiest way to mod classic games. Read on below for more information, including availability.
- NVIDIA Broadcast adds Eye Contact, a new feature that uses AI to make it appear as if you’re looking directly at the camera, even when glancing to the side or taking notes. This new feature allows for better audience engagement, and makes you appear fully invested in the conversation at all times. Look for the update later in January.
- Over half of RTX users run their display at resolutions above 1080p, but over 90% of online video is 1080p or lower, resulting in upscaling that further degrades the picture. In February, we’re launching RTX Video Super Resolution, which uses AI to improve the quality of any video streamed through Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browsers on GeForce RTX 30 and 40 Series GPUs. Support for GeForce RTX 20 Series GPUs will come in a later update.
- NVIDIA Canvas turns basic brushstrokes into photorealistic landscapes in seconds. We are adding a new feature - Canvas 360 - that will turn Canvas’ vistas into exportable spherical maps that can be loaded into a 3D app, such as Unreal Engine, Unity, or Blender, to use as environmental maps to set the ambient lighting of your scenes. The update to Canvas is coming later in Q1.
There’s much more, for NVIDIA Omniverse and other applications, so be sure to check out the new NVIDIA Studio article for details.
Portal: Prelude RTX, Built With RTX Remix, Coming Soon
NVIDIA RTX Remix, is a free modding platform built on NVIDIA Omniverse that enables modders to quickly create and share #RTXON mods for classic games, each with full ray tracing (a.k.a. path tracing), enhanced materials, NVIDIA DLSS 3, and NVIDIA Reflex.
The jaw-dropping Portal with RTX was built with NVIDIA RTX Remix, and to demonstrate how easy it is for modders to turn RTX On in their mods, we shared RTX Remix with the original creator of Portal: Prelude, an unofficial Portal prequel originally released in 2008.
Portal: Prelude is a challenging expansion that packs as much content as the original Portal. It is the most popular Portal mod, and was a breakout success for its mind-bending puzzles, much harder platforming, and its boldness to tell an original story in the Portal universe. It was even bundled as a free CD-ROM with Joystick magazine, and featured on MTV.
Nicolas "NykO18" Grevet, the original creator, is working alongside famous modder David “Kralich” Driver-Gomm to modernize Portal: Prelude’s assets and relight the game with stunning full ray tracing.
Portal: Prelude RTX will release soon, and will be free to download on mod sites like ModDB and Nexus Mods.
NVIDIA RTX Remix will enter Early Access soon. Sign up here to be notified of its release.
NVIDIA Reflex Ecosystem Continues to Expand With New Games & 1440p 360Hz Monitors
NVIDIA Reflex is used by over 20 million players each month and over 50 games feature Reflex support. Soon, the highly anticipated Party Animals, from Recreate Games and Source Technology, will launch with NVIDIA Reflex. And we’ve recently added support for 4 more games:
- Jurassic World Evolution 2: reduce system latency by up to 28%
- Portal with RTX: reduce system latency by up to 33%
- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt: reduce system latency by up to 43%
- Warhammer 40,000: Darktide: reduce system latency by up to 44%
For gamers who want the highest competitive advantage, it’s time to upgrade to a 1440p 360Hz gaming monitor. These deliver superior image quality and clarity, helping improve your aim, while maintaining the low latency of 1080p displays.
The new ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz PG27AQN, Acer Predator XB273U F, and upcoming AOC AGON PRO AG276QSG, are the first super high quality, esports-ready 1440p, 360Hz, 27” gaming monitors, with improved motion clarity, dual driver IPS panels, native G-SYNC modules, G-SYNC esports mode latency optimizations, and optional Ultra Low Motion Blur modes.
